EPA's report not surprising for residents

Posted: Updated:
FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Arthur Woodson is one of many protesters that called for the Environmental Protection Agency to look into his city’s water crisis.

“I wasn't surprised – I am just glad that they brought it out to the open,” Woodson said.

In a detailed report released on Wednesday, the EPA laid out its findings on Flint's water problems.

It found increased lead levels in off Hemphill and Pengelly Roads near Bryant Street.

Susan Hedman is the EPA's administrator for this region.

"The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is very concerned about lead levels in Flint," Hedman said.

Pete Hall only uses his water to wash his car as his grandson looks on. However, that's as close as he will let him get to the water.

“I'm more scared for the kids drinking it because kids when they get thirsty they going to drink the first thing available," Hall said.

Neighbors said they see no good news insight regarding the water woes of Flint, and they want to be tested.
